Who doesn’t want to be creative ? Everyone has that hidden desire to be famous. That is why I signed up to be the next ” Ridley SCOTT ” The student loan was easy ( which is almost paid off ) . The decision was not easy to ” go back to school ” at 36 years old. But it was ” the best thing I ever did ! “
Many of my friends are doing well in the industry. Some are writer’s, editors, camera operators and a few are” doing nothing” . Blaming the school on messing up their life. They most likely would have been failures even if they did not go to school. It’s not any different from any school. There are so many people I know that went to school for something….. and spent their life in a totally different career. But the ” school ” was always there BEGINNING !
Some of my friends are not even in Film-Video anymore and doing well. This degree ” looks well ” on your resume. Going back to school gave me hope for ” what I want to be when I grow up “. I went to learn everything about Film & Video but my lesson went far beyond that. Making a commitment and completing that brought a lot of ” SELF WORTH “. I also got some nice gifts and a lot of pat ‘S on the back.
I am now retired and live in Beautiful Cancun Mexico. Looking back at how I used my knowledge from school to help me make a good living. I made ” Real Estate ” my ” LIFE PLAN “. What I learned in Film – Video school really helped . From writing adds to those ways people LOOK at thing’s almost as looking through a lens.
Today, I am back to my true ” LOVE” Video. I kept it up as a hobby but now do Video for FUN and Profit. The future on the Internet is VIDEO. You do not need an expensive camera or fancy editing equipment or even be an expert to make a good living at it. Like to travel ? Bring your camera and you may ” TRAVEL FREE ” and it’s fun. Do not ever forget “LIFE” is meant to be FUN so lets enjoy this trip together.
So from Cancun and my small $50,000 beach front home I wish you all well ! THE IDEA MAN……..JIM
